Amorim Denies Liverpool Agreement

Sporting manager Ruben Amorim has denied he has reached an agreement with Liverpool over succeeding Jurgen Klopp.

Sky in Germany reported earlier this week the 39-year-old had reached a verbal agreement in principle with Liverpool.
But Amorim has flatly denied those reports and insisted he has not held any interview with Liverpool as he focuses on guiding Sporting to the league title with the club sitting four points clear of Benfica.

The Portuguese boss told a press conference: "This is the last time I'm going to talk about my future. There was no interview and certainly no agreement.
"The only thing we all want here is to be champions with Sporting, nothing will change. I'm the Sporting coach and there was no interview or agreement with any club.

"I'm just focused, as always, on representing my club. As I no longer have anything else to say…

"There will be no interviews or agreements with the Sporting coach. The matter is completely resolved, whether related to this club or another."
